    There was an insert in our local paper today for a "The Chicago Bears Express illuminated electric train set". Three easy payments of $23.31 (plus a total of $7.99 s&h) gets you "an heirloom quality, HO-scale train on HO-gauge track". Actually, the "Power-pack and nickel silver E-Z Track (r) elevated roadbed tracks" are "FREE - a $60 value"!

    There's more, but I can have to get off now since it's a "Limited-Time Offer - Please Respond Promptly"!

    Ralph's for fun!

    How about a MN Vikings Limted? The way they're playing this year, though, I expect that train would come in way behind schedule. :)

    Hhhmmm.........sounds quite a bit like the Thomas Kinkaide (sp?) version I saw an ad for recently. Except it was four easy payments of $24CDN (or thereabouts), *just* for the loco and tender. Every other month you'd be billed for additional passenger cars. Also included the power pack and E-Z track free.

    Any body ever see how much they wanted for the Dale Earnhardt Train? Last time I saw one it was close to $400.00.
